Cellular and molecular mechanisms of apoptosis in skeletal muscle atrophy
Apoptosis is necessary for maintaining the integrity of proliferative tissues, such as epithelial cells of the gastrointestinal and integumentary systems. The role of apoptosis in post-mitotic tissues, such as skeletal ...
The effect of malaria and anti-malarial drugs on skeletal and cardiac muscles
(BioMed Central, 2016)
Abstract Malaria remains one of the most important infectious diseases in the world, being a significant public health problem associated with poverty and it is one of the main obstacles to the economy of ...
Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor (CNTF) affects the excitable and contractile properties of innervated skeletal muscles
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2003)
Ion pathways in transverse tubules. Quantification of receptors in membranes isolated from frog and rabbit skeletal muscle
The presence of four cation pathways in membrane vesicles isolated from transverse tubules of frog and rabbit skeletal muscle was studied by measuring binding of specific blockers. Transverse tubules purified from frog ...
Morphological aspects of muscle regeneration in the Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)
The aim of our study was to analyze the morphological events in the skeletal muscle of the Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) after a traumatic lesion. Thirty-two fish were used, on which a small longitudinal incision ...
Histoenzymological and ultrastructural changes in lateral muscle fibers of Oreochromis niloticus (Teleostei: Cichlidae) after local injection of veratrine
The effects of veratrine have been investigated in mammalian, amphibian, and crustacean muscle, but not in fish. In this work, the action of veratrine was studied in the lateral muscle of the freshwater teleost Oreochromis ...
